Quality Control

Library Preparation



We accept Illumina-compatible user-prepared libraries. For such libraries, certain QC metrics are required before sample submission. Please contact us for details.  Library validation and quantification services (Qubit, BioAnalyzer, qPCR) are also available for user-prepared libraries. Prices valid from 1 April 2023.
